I go to Fortis for this and I don’t recommend it. They are very much into getting all the money they can from you and care nothing about your education. I haven’t learned anything there that I didn’t already know.

There were several people that started with me that quit and went ahead and took the PTCB exam, passed and now have jobs. You could find some practice tests or get a book and see how well you do. The main thing is going to be knowing your trade and generic names, but you can get a drug list book from a bookstore for around $27. 


ETA: I’m only still in school because I’m almost finished and didn’t know that I could have just gone and taken the PTCB.

I became a pharmacy tech while I was in college and held the license for a long time. I would never actually pay to go to school to be a pharmacy tech though. You can learn a lot just by starting at a pharmacy.
